Envision Community is a proposal to build and operate a 2-year live demonstration of an intentional community made up of 15-30 people living in micro-homes, with the goal of creating health equity. Our proposal also includes the rigorous study of Envision using Community Based Participatory Research and continuous improvement of Envision through frequent iteration.
